Each module earns 1 CPD point in the categories Technical/Skills. The Foundations modules attract a maximum of 10 CPD points in total within one calendar year.
You may also apply for a completion certificate once you have successfully completed all 14 Foundations modules. Please email [email protected] to request a completion certificate.
To meet the requirements of FCVic’s Small Business Scope of Practice, these modules consist of both content and assessment tasks. Some of these tasks test factual knowledge, while others call for judgment. The process of thinking through assessment tasks is an important part of learning, however we recognise that some of these questions, particularly those requiring judgment, can be quite tricky and time consuming to answer.
To assist with these more challenging questions, we’ve developed a complementary hints module.
The hints module is intended to be an evolving document and we welcome new feedback and additions. If you come across a challenging question and there is not yet a hint for it, please screenshot the question you’re having trouble with and email it to Bella Walker at [email protected] – we’ll get back to you with an answer and will also add the question to the hints module.
